Cardiac abnormalities in McLeod syndrome


Oechslin, E; Kaup, D; Jenni, R; Jung, H H (2009). Cardiac abnormalities in McLeod syndrome. International Journal of Cardiology, 132(1):130-132.

Abstract

We report the cardiac features of seven patients with X-linked McLeod neuroacanthocytosis syndrome, a multi-system disorder resembling Huntington's disease and cardiac manifestations in about half of the patients reported to date. One patient presented with a cardiomyopathy (normal size of the left ventricle with concentric remodeling and mildly impaired ejection fraction, 43%). This patient died from sudden cardiac death in the absence of any cardiovascular risk factors. Autopsy demonstrated eccentric hypertrophy and mild left ventricular dilatation. Histopathology was not specific and revealed focal myocyte hypertrophy, slight variation of myofiber size and patchy interstitial fibrosis.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
